Cedar Keyhole Garden

We’re thrilled to introduce this growing technique to home gardeners! Our U-shaped, elevated Keyhole Garden has an integrated composter that transforms kitchen scraps into rich fertilizer and delivers it to plants. Pioneered in Africa, self-sustaining keyhole gardens are a traditional way to grow food in regions with poor soil and limited rainfall because they require less water and fertilizer to produce a big harvest.

Keyhole gardens are traditionally filled half-way with alternating layers of "brown" and "green” materials, similar to building a compost pile. As these materials decompose, they build rich, fertile soil, and they act as a sponge to hold moisture so it's available to plants during dry times. You can fill the rest of the bed with a mixture of Potting Mix, topsoil and compost. You're ready to plant! (If you prefer, you can fill the entire bed with a blend of Potting Mix, topsoil and compost.)

      Comments about : Cedar Keyhole Garden:

      I am not very handy, but this was pretty easy to assemble. My teenage son helped when pieces had to be held. Otherwise, it could be a one person job.
      I would recommend ensuring you have the materials to fill the garden if you want to use it immediately. I should have had more green materials to fill, but was able to find free mulch and compost at our local landfill.
      I am considering planting a few winter crops to see how it grows.
      So far, the family is happy with the garden.

      Perfect height to allow my 87-year-old Dad continue to grow the vegetables he loves to grow. Easy to assemble and looks good.

      Better wider for wheelchairs

      By ADKMGV

      Comments about : Cedar Keyhole Garden:

      Keyhole raised beds are also great as accessible garden spaces for those using wheelchairs. However, the width of the keyhole in the current model is only 24" wide. Any possibility of looking at making one where the keyhole portion is at least 36" wide? Other design changes would be needed for such a keyhole garden to be truly wheelchair accessible, but thought I'd mention the possibilities. The current model looks very interesting and useful for older gardeners, as well as those with limited space.
